Hailed by The New York Times as a "foul-mouthed, fun-packed play about the urges that drive good men (and women, and boys) to dirty deeds," hilariously twisted sock puppet comedy Hand to God makes its off-Broadway debut at MCC Theater. A big hit with both audiences and critics, the play centers around the young students of a Texas Christian Puppet Ministry. Taught to obey the Bible in order to evade "Satan's hand," things take a darkly comic turn when one devout young man's puppet takes on a shocking personality that no one could have expected. His demented puppet, Tyrone, soon teaches those around him that idle hands truly are the Devil's playthings. Learn More

Engrossing performance and acting. One confused sexual compulsive writer, one married man with difficulty coming out, the woman he married in distress. There was some back and forth in terms of time of action which may have been confusing, but didn't really seem to matter much.
Oliver, Philip, and Sylvia are caught in a kind of erotic time warp. Their complex love triangle, replete with conflicting loyalties and passions, jumps from 1958 to the present and back in a maelstrom of fantasy, repression and rebellion in this innovative new drama. After taking London by storm last season in an Olivier Award-winning production at the Royal Court, The Pride now makes its American premiere at MCC Theater.
Tony Award-winning director Joe Mantello (Glengarry Glen Ross, Take Me Out) directs this alternately tough and touching look at love and betrayal by Alexi Kaye Campbell (Apologia). Four of Britain's most acclaimed young actors, Hugh Dancy (Adam, Journey's End), Adam James (Last Chance Harvey), Andrea Riseborough (Happy-Go-Lucky) and Ben Whishaw (Bright Star, Brideshead Revisited) will star.
